Watch the YouTube livestream

Over the past year, as schools and communities have grappled with the COVID pandemic, learning in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics subjects has been impacted in a number of acute and critically concerning ways. The loss of hands-on and experiential learning, together with a generalized narrowing of the curriculum has presented a myriad of challenges to STEM educators at every level across the country. This webinar, co-hosted by the STEM Education Coalition Policy Forum and STEMx, will cover how each level is addressing “learning loss” and how local and state leaders are leveraging federal resources that have been directed to that end. Is “learning loss” even the best way to describe today’s reality? The Zoom webinar will be open to interested Congressional and federal agency staff as participants and will be watchable via YouTube simulcast to the general public.
